The Not-Dead and the Saved

Prospect magazine commissioned this illustration for a poignant, thought-provoking story by Kate Clanchy about parental love and sacrifice in a hospital ward. The Not-Dead and The Saved has been awarded this year's V.S. Pritchett Memorial Prize and the BBC National Short Story Award.

Clanchy's story has been praised for its "rich lyricism" and "deeply affecting style ... an account of a deeply painful experience" that becomes "richer on every re-reading." Critics were impressed by its "acute control of emotional tone and by the vividness and generosity of the writing."

Kate Clanchy was born in Glasgow in 1965 and educated in Edinburgh and Oxford. She currently lives in Oxford where she now works as a teacher, journalist and freelance writer.

Art direction by David Killen.

Wonderful illustration. Subtle, beautiful. Pitch perfect for the story.

New here,

I'm spending my time here for the children of Haiti.

I'm at this site for a non-profit haiti organization that gives their time to
building an oppurunity for the children in haiti. If anyone here wants to help then this is the place:

They provide kids in Haiti a positive learning environment.

Please check it out, they're a real cause.

It would be great if you could help
